Early on, we meet Oliver, an actor playing Steve the policeman, who investigated the 1982 murders when they happened. Later, though, it is revealed that Steve and Cathy were high school sweethearts at the time of the murders. If Steve was still a high school student, he would not have been a policeman yet, and could not have investigated the murders. See more »

Interesting! Pretty Good!
29 August 1999 | by (Arizona) – See all my reviews

I was pretty angry about the review left by Dangera. He said it was a bad movie and he turned it off after the first 20 minutes. Well, you can't put a final judgment on a movie by the first 20 minutes! I actually watched the WHOLE MOVIE and I thought it was pretty good. I can see why it could be considered cheesy, but it is kinda cheesy in a good way. Also, you need to watch the whole thing because there is a twist ending that is pretty cool. I suggest you give this movie a try. However, an even more under appreciated horror movie is one called "Popcorn". It is really great! Check out my review on that one!
